Naming contest announcement!


February 28, 2013

Hey, student journalists, we need your help! ASNE is launching a brand new website dedicated to great student journalism. Every week, you’ll be able to submit your best published work to compete for one of four $100 prizes, bragging rights and a chance to have your work appear on the site. But first, we need a name.

Help us name our new website! If your name is chosen, you will win $250 — and so will your school’s journalism program.

Be creative, be thoughtful.

Submit names to newname@asne.org by 11:59 p.m. EST May 31. There is no limit on the number of entries per person. In your email, please include your name, phone number and email address, as well as your school’s name, address and phone number.

The fine print:

To be eligible, students must be enrolled in grades 6 through 12 at any school in the U.S. All decisions by ASNE judges are final. If the winning name is submitted by multiple students, the first entry submitted according to our date and time stamp logs is the winner. ASNE reserves the right to modify the winning entry. Winner will be notified by email.
